The climate of Biratnagar (Nepal)
Biratnagar is located in the southeastern part of Nepal and is the second largest city in the country. The city is an important industrial center for the region; many factories can be found here. The city is situated on the fertile Gangetic high plains. These plains get their water supply from the rivers Ganges and Indus and encompass large parts of India, Nepal and Bangladesh and are very fertile. This means agriculture is a main source of income for the region. Biratnagar itself is not really a tourist destination. However, the city is often used as a starting point to explore the surroundings. Besides the beautiful surroundings religious festivals are held here several times per year. The inhabitants of Biratnagar celebrate these festivals very exuberantly. The largest part of the population of Biratnagar are Hindus.
Because of its situation Biratnagar has an extreme climate; besides the four seasons there is also a monsoon period. Differences between the seasons are rather large. Spring starts early and temperatures are pleasantly warm then, sometimes even hot. During the second part of summer the monsoon period starts. Besides high temperatures precipitation figures are unpleasantly high. Autumn and winter are windy, foggy and rainy. During these periods temperatures drop and may even drop a few degrees Celsius below freezing point.
